Kettlewell was actually transmitting ITV Granada up until 1983,presumably because before that time
Winter Hill and dependents was a better feed?

It certainly seemed to upto 1968 as I can see that in the little potted history further up the page, just before the transmitter radiation pattern, but that says Yorkshire Television was from July 1968. I'm not familiar enough with the history to be able to check the detail.
